Spiced Chocolate Mousse
Ingredients
6 oz. bittersweet or semisweet chocolate broken in to small pieces
1 1/4 cups heavy whipping cream divided
1 (3- oz.) package cream cheese softened
2 tbsp. light corn syrup
2 tbsp. dark rum
1 tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. ground ginger
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
Additional whipped cream and shaved chocolate for garnish, if desired
Directions
Prep time: 20 minutes, Chill time: 4 hours

Melt chocolate in the top of a double boiler or in
the microwave; set aside. In a bowl of an electric
mixer, beat 1 cup whipping cream until soft peaks
form. In the large bowl of an electric mixer, beat
cream cheese for about 3 minutes or until light
and fluffy. Add corn syrup, rum, cinnamon, ginger and
vanilla. With the mixer
on low speed, slowly pour in melted chocolate,
scraping the sides of the bowl several times; beat
until combined. Add remaining 1/4 cup cream
and beat until thoroughly combined. Fold
whipped cream into chocolate mixture. Divide
equally between 8 small wine glasses and chill for
at least 4 hours. Garnish with whipped cream and
shaved chocolate before serving, if desired.

Makes 8 servings.
Wine Suggestion
Ironstone Cabernet Sauvignon - If you use bittersweet chocolate to whip up the mousse, this makes a lush pairing - or try a rich Zin.

these directions aren't very clear. beat cream cheese, then add chocolate, then add more stuff, then add the melted chocolate? sounds like you're adding the chocolate from two different sources, which you don't have specified.
